Banner is a sculptor but is also a film-maker, photographer, painter and actor. Her highly conceptual sculptural work often incorporates words. She has written out scene-by-scene descriptions of films, some made by herself, which then become the artwork. She does large scale installations using words and punctuation in concrete form. War, weaponry, and politics are ongoing themes.
Fun Fact: Banner is an English artist who was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2002. In 2010, she produced new work for a commission at Tate Britain.
